Description

Summary

A mellower sound than the other pianos, the Bösendorfer 290 excels in both light & bouncy and legato & sustained passages. Rather than aspiring to the grandeur of its brighter rival, it prides itself on buttery smooth performances. When you engage the sustain pedal, this smoothness increases tenfold and lends this Bösendorfer the power and richness of an entire orchestra.
